Description:

Everybody uses arithmetic on virtually a daily basis, and this book serves as a handy brush-up for general readers while it also helps students master basic skills that they need before moving up to high-school-level math and beyond. It reviews addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, then moves on to calculating with fractions, decimals, and percentages. A concluding chapter reviews units of measurement and word problems. Chapters are filled with short practice exercises, all of which are answered at the back of the book. The book features many tables, charts, and line illustrations. Barron'sEasy Waybooks introduce a variety of academic and practical subjects to students and general readers in clear, understandable language. Ideal as self-teaching manuals for readers interested in learning a new career-related skill, these books have also found widespread classroom use as supplementary texts and brush-up test-preparation guides. Subject heads and key phrases that need to be learned are set in a second color.
